tpstar: <got us near universal healthcare. It worked for eight years> No it didn't work - not even close - but next you will say, "Well, what a great man, he *tried* to get everyone health care, and if only those greedy hospitals would make a little less money, and if only those greedy

tpstar: Some Medium puzzles from online practice games. For our program's Tactics Archive, all sacrifices are accepted. 1) White to Play after 17 ... Qd6-e5: [DIAGRAM] 2) Black to Play after 15. Pb3xc4: [DIAGRAM] 3) White to Play after 16 ... Bb5-c6: [DIAGRAM] 4) Black to Play after 28. ...

tpstar: 25. hxg3 Qxe3+ 26. Kd1 (26. Kf1 Qe1#) Rb1+ 27. Rc1 Rxc1+ 28. Qxc1 Qe2#. White choked on that Pawn.
 
   Feb-26-17 T Kelly vs F R Anderson, 1954
 
tpstar: 22 ... Qf1+ 23. Kg3 Qe1+ 24. Rf2/Nf2 Rxa1 wins a piece. Also 22 ... Rxa1 23. Bxa1 Qa2+, and also 22 ... Rd2+. 14 ... Qc8 & 15 ... Qa6 was inventive and effective.

   Feb-26-17 J Lachaux vs G Tallaksen Ostmoe, 2000
 
tpstar: 3 ... Nxe4 is one way to avoid the sharp Blackmar-Diemer Gambit = Opening Explorer 6. f3 Bd6 7. Be3 (7. fxe4?! Qh4+) 0-0 8. Qe2 and then 8 ... exf3 so Black got in two useful developing moves. Very nice major piece endgame, patiently converted by Black.
 
   Feb-26-17 H Melkumyan vs Adams, 2015
 
tpstar: 29. Rd3! was a nice move retaining the extra Pawn - 29 ... exd3? 30. Qxe8+ Kh7 31. Rc8 forces 31 ... Qxc8 (otherwise 32. Qh8#) 32. Qxc8, then 32 ... d2 33. Qc2 Rd4 34. Qd1 wins. 50 ... Qxb4 (50 ... f5? 51. Qg5+ & 52. Qxf5+ & 53. Qxe4) 51. Qxe4+ Qxe4 52. fxe4 Kh5 53. e5 is a won K&P ...
 
   Feb-25-17 O Korneev vs P Simacek, 2007
 
tpstar: Interesting how White consolidated the Queenside by trading on e5 (19. Bxe5) followed by 20. Bc4 & 21. Nd3. 26. Rxh6!! was a brilliant shot, with 31. Qc6 as a fine coupe de grace which White must have seen all along. The Pb4 will soon be lost, leading to a N v B ending with White ...
 
   Feb-25-17 A Riazantsev vs Jakovenko, 2017
 
tpstar: 20. f4 Qg4+ wins the Rd1. <The opening is in fact a Caro-Kann by transposition, specifically the Caro-Kann Defense: Panov Attack. Modern Defense Mieses Line.> Opening Explorer
